Personally, I think Heat is a top 5 organisation in player development. I never want to scrape the bottom of the barrel of clubs that have a great rep in developing guys.Robinson was fantastic for several years. Not a 1 year player. He feels like a buy low, sell on option as others have stated. I am still shocked he isn't playing more in Miami, if for nothing else but to feature him or revive him.
Taking on his contract is worth a pick plus a young player imho. Bertans is the same deal.
Would anyone consider Bertans if the wiz turn in to sellers?
Porzingis playing the 4
Thats a tall, athletic lineup.
I think I would stay away from Porz. I think the idea of Porz is better than the reality, as we have seen now with 2 teams that should have been dominant with him but just couldn't make it work. I think he is the problem and we should stay away.I just think Porzingis would make for an interesting matchup issue for many teams. Length, athleticism, shooting.
I think the wizards have been disappointed with him and if we could buy low, it would be fun to watch.
Olynyk, THT, and filler?
Conley, Olynyk, and a second round pick?
The Jazz remain among the teams with strong interest in Collins. When the Jazz and Hawks discussed a Collins deal early in the season, Atlanta asked for Malik Beasley and Jarred Vanderbilt, according to sources. The Jazz countered by asking for a first-round pick in return, and when the Hawks declined, talks stalled.
It remains to be seen where conversations unfold between Fields and the Jazz’s front office led by CEO Danny Ainge and GM Justin Zanik.
Forward Jalen McDaniels continues to be a name several teams like the Suns, Raptors, Jazz, Pacers and Spurs are closely monitoring, but the Hornets value the 6-foot-9 forward whom they have developed over the past four seasons. Teams with interest and cap space this offseason, such as the Jazz, Pacers and Spurs, may opt to wait until free agency to court McDaniels, who will be unrestricted, instead of trading an asset to acquire him now while having to compensate him in July.
The Jazz are expressing strong interest in Mavericks forward Dorian Finney-Smith, as teams have gotten the impression that Dallas would be open to moving the 29-year-old in the right deal for a star-caliber player, sources say. The Mavericks have an incredibly high price threshold for teams reaching out about Finney-Smith, rival executives say.
DFS is the type of win now acquisition I’m not excited about. No idea what Dallas s thinking there but the price would have to be lower than I think it should be… would seem like a contender would outbid us on a deal for him.
Yeah that’s what I kinda hinted at below but I’d still be a little puzzled if we had the best offer… that seems like a Phoenix, Milwaukee, NO type of target… Memphis too. If it was the Philly pick then by all means… if it’s more than that then hard pass.I could be wrong but it seems like we’d be the third team in a deal for Dallas to get a really good player.
Let’s say they go after someone like Anunoby. They send DFS our way. We send expiring salary plus a pick to Toronto and Dallas sends their own picks to Toronto.

I don’t get any part of the DFS rumor unless Mike is considered a “star player”. Maybe we unload a pick to get him and they use that pick to help in getting a star. Weird all the way around. Feels like Mavs looped is in their for leverage.
